Vote for Osterwalder

With the upcoming election rapidly approaching, I would like to take this opportunity to urge the residents of the Hopewell-Loudon school district to cast their votes for Rick Osterwalder and elect him to serve as a member of the H-L board of education.

I have had the privilege of knowing Rick for many years and I worked closely with him when he previously served on the Hopewell-Loudon and Vanguard-Sentinel boards of education. I found him to be a valuable and knowledgeable board member, especially in the areas of business and fiscal management.

In his role as president of the Vanguard-Sentinel board, he not only demonstrated his negotiation and leadership skills, but his ability to examine the issues from all sides before rendering a decision. The experience he garnered while serving on these boards will offer additional quality and expertise to the present Hopewell-Loudon board. Most importantly, above all of his other attributes, Rick is student-oriented and makes decisions based on what is the best for the students and the district he serves.

For an experienced, qualified and knowledgeable board member, please vote for Rick Osterwalder.
